How is this fair? What advantage does a Lexington have?

So I stop playing this game over a year ago because a patch dropped the default Lexington from a 2-1-1 to a 1-1-1 which put it at a huge disadvantage against the Shokaku. However it poorly could of been defended by saying "American planes are superior" but now with the Enterprise with a composition of 2-2-2, what advantage does a Lexington have?  How has the Lexington remained broken for over a year now?

Lexington is garbo, you don't even get the ability to play it as it's original battlecruiser self, then at least you could derp around and shoot people up with your secondaries.

I played Lex a lot even though I made it all the way to Midway. imo, the only viable loadout for Lex is AS so that I can protect my fleet by sacrificing the potential damage i can make with current balanced (stock) or strike loadouts.

You've been gone a long, long time OP if you came back and just noticed that Lexi's 2/1/1 is kaput :Smile_Default:  I was quite upset about it.  I had *JUST* gotten to Lexington back in the day.  Then a week or two later, WG nerfed her into the ground.  I got her because she was the first USN CV that has ample fighter capability and decent enough attack capability.  2/1/1 was where it was at!  Then WG took it away.

 

Right now?  Stock 1/1/1 is doable but unforgiving, IMO.  Most especially so against Enterprise, AS CVs.

 

AS Lexington sports 2 fighters to put fear into other CVs for their planes.  The problem is her ability to do damage is so bad that she's likely a non-factor in damage contribution for the team.

 

The fun part?  When the USN CV Revamp goes live, Lexington gets the help of +1 RNG Fest Dive Bomber.

Yay?

Nay.

Give her back her 2/1/1.

Her advantage is that the enemy CV won't take you seriously if you aren't running 2-0-2. :cap_book:

Let's see what the new version of the USN CVs will bring us.

I tried new Lex loadout in PTS. Her new 112 loadout is obviously better than current 111.

However, Lex will still struggle against decent CV skippers running Shokaku's and Enterprise's 222 loadouts.

We already know. Fills one with enthusiasm, doesn't it?

I have heard all kinds of reviews from them in the PTS. When they hit live server, i want to try them myself to have my own conclusions (when even the potatoes will try the "new stuff" as well, so i can grind faster :cap_haloween:)

Next update (most likely this wednesday when the rental ships will be changed as well). The new forms of the US CVs were being tested in the public test recently and anyone could play them. But knowing WG they could change their minds only a few hours before the patch in the live server (memories from german DDs, Henry IV...). So don't take it as 100%.
